Sports betting, also known as SportBooking, is the process of placing bets on the outcome of a sporting event. Historically, the payouts for sports betting were determined by the outcome of the game. However, PASPA, which Congress adopted in 1992, prohibits betting on sports via the internet and in-person. However, with the repeal of PASPA, Nevada has become a legal sports betting state. Apps for sports betting handle payments and register betting choices and act as a clearinghouse for bet calls or payouts.
